Back to part 2

So this must be turning into the most drawn out build log ever.  Apologies once again as an unplanned hiatus due to life rearing it's head and biting me in the backside has meant I've been out of racing for what feels like far too long.  So I thought at long last I really should get this build log wrapped up so I can start blogging on some other things.

This is the final part of the build and goes from shocks to electrics to the finished build.  I hope you enjoy the pictures.


I really like the look of these shocks with the grey anodising so I took a few photos ;)




I'm using TSHOX springs.  Since I race on carpet I use the yellow ones all round.




One complaint about the chassis is that the servo saver will foul the steering posts if fitted for symmetrical throw left and right.  I've trimmed my servo saver down (not shown) to get it as best I can.

Since I'm complaining let's get it all over with.  The pinions are very hard to fit as the access hole appears to be in the wrong place.  A ball end hex driver is a big help.

The kit battery mounts don't allow the battery position to be changed at all.  I'm a big believer that a great set up starts with an even weight distribution so I converted to a Tamiya style solution which is fully adjustable.


PRO TIP

Those are squares of foam tape stuck to the chassis.  Not only does this help prevent the battery rubbing and scuffing the chassis but it also helps the chassis flex under the battery.  The pattern and theory was taken from a post on rctech.net sorry I can't find it to give proper credit.



My usual ESC...

...and my usual body shell and we are done!


Here are some photos of the whole thing with electrics and tyres.
